The cellar of the First German Tobacco Museum, birth house of the important Frankonian composer Johann Valentin Rathgeber (1682-1750) is the best suited place to combine Sound and Smoke here.

Lecture in Kraków/Poland on October 19, 2005

Lecture of the Valentin-Rathgeber-Society in Poland

Visit at the Institute for Musicology at KrakówThe famous composer Valentin Rathgeber born in Oberelsbach on April 3, 1682, is hardly known in Poland so far. The Polish musicologist Marcin Konik of Kraków University found in monastic archives in Poland and Slovakia a lot of manuscripts with compositions of Rathgeber. He was surprised at the former importance of this composer hitherto unknown in his home country.  Literature on this composer is also sparse.  Only by searching the internet he could contact the Valentin-Rathgeber-Society in Oberelsbach. Due to his initiative, a  fruitful dialogue was established and  a lot of manuscripts could be identified with the historical prints.
